Don’t expect all Canadians to improve bad habits with phones: study

Nokia New Year's Resolutions.FINALSleep with your phone under the pillow? Text your friends during dinner? It might be time to put that bad habit behind you.

A new study suggests some Canadians are aiming to fix bad habits they have with their tech gadgets in the new year.

The study, commissioned by Nokia, found that not all Canadians hope to change up their bad habits with their phones.

Not surprisingly, about 22 per cent of Canadians aged 18-34 send text messages while in the movie theatre, and just under 50 per cent are going to stop doing so next year. So prepare to kick some seats in front of you since this habit doesn’t seem to be going away.

The study also found that 41 per cent of Canadians keep their phones within arm’s reach all the time. Yes, that includes when they’re trying to get some shut-eye…or not so much.

Did Nokia fake it in ad for new Lumia 920 phone?

It appears Nokia has faked part of a video that seems to be captured by its new steady-shooting flagship smartphone, the Lumia 920.

The phone features snazzy new camera technology called PureView. It’s designed to capture incredibly vivid high resolution images.

By using something Nokia calls “floating lens technology” the phone is said to take in five times more light than other smartphones and offer image stabilization to reduce camera shake.

In a statement, Nokia’s vice president of Smart Devices said PureView will capture pictures “usually only seen on a standalone SLR camera.”

But when filming a promotional video for the new Lumia 920, it seems they used a standalone SLR camera to capture images that the smartphone did, according to the Verge.
